Current Make Up Wishlist and What to be looking out for!

Here are the top 5 make up items that i’m currently lusting over, and I WILL be purchasing in the near future.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

I love any Too Faced product, but this foundation from the reviews and swatches I’ve seen looks to die for!! Its full coverage, dewy and luminous , everything we desire in a foundation however if you’re oily like me you may want to carry a powder round with you! On this image is beauty guru Shaaaanxo and you can see how amazing this looks. It comes in around £29 and you can purchase this from

Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator

LOOK AT THAT GLOW… is all I can say. These creamy powder highlighters come in 4 shades, so hollywood, peach nectar, riviera and starlight. I’d be happy with any of them, they’re super pigmented and glowy and this will be my next purchase!! The shade in the picture is peach nectar. They come in around £28!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour kit

Here pictured is Beauty guru Carli Bybel deciding whether the ABH cream contour kits are a hit or miss. I haven’t personally tried the kits yet as I’ve been debating buying them for a while. This is because I’ve always used separate items to highlight and contour , such as dark and light concealers and never thought to use an actual kit.
It’s also quite pricey coming in around £39.99 but the beauty gurus of the world all say its worth it!!

My favourite lip glosses and liquid lipsticks for Autumn | Review and Swatches

Favourite lipglosses

Certain colours we wear in Autumn really complement the colours in the air, the ground, the trees and usually we run with the theme of oranges, burgundy, browns and this applies to make up too.

I’ve picked out 4 lip colours that i feel will compliment all make up colours that are fall appropriate.

2 of them glossy lip colours and 2 liquid matte finish lipsticks.


Smashbox legendary lip gloss in Disco Rose –

This colour is absolutely beautiful , a proper “glossy” gloss however it’s really pigmented so much so there doesn’t even need to be a lipstick underneath!! The rose shade is perfect for fall eyes , oranges, browns , purples etc. I’m gonna wear this colour for the rest of the year!! This was sent as a sample to me so I’m unsure of the price.

Chanel Lipgloss in 46 – 

This lipgloss is absolutely to die for!!! Looks great over a brown lipstick or by itself. Its taupe/mauve shade is completely the colour of the season. Its versatile and will look good over purples, browns, nudes and pinks. Its a little pricey at £22 but will last you forever as you don’t need much for 1 application.



Liquid Lipsticks

MUA Luxe Velvet liquid lipstick in Halcyon

This bargain liquid lipstick is 100% one of the best I’ve ever used and at an amazing price of £4 you can’t go wrong. The consistency is thick but not too drying, the colour is nudey/pinkey/mauve shade and it lasts all day without flaking or drying, I’m going to buy every shade!!

Lime Crime Velvetine Collection in Salem – 

This liquid lipstick is the , the shade isn’t for the faint hearted as its extremely dark BUT should you dare to wear it I personally feel it will suit all skin tones in different ways. This particular lipstick is around £13 but much like the other one will completely last all day and night if you left it !! its creamy, super pigmented, quite difficult to apply because of the dark colour, does need a bit of practice! Once you have mastered it, is totally worth it.

Glowy Skin products : How to revive tired skin.

What products did I use for this super glowy look??

  • Smashbox Luminizing photo finish primer
  • NARS Luminizer cream in “Copacabana”
  • Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in “5.5”
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in “Custard”
  • MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation in NC35

  • Top tips for tired skin:

Don’t forget to exfoliate!! It is sooo important to exfoliate your skin at least 2-3 times a week to prevent the build up of dead skin cells that cause skin to look and feel dull.

Drink plenty of water – hydration is the biggest factor in bright skin, drinking 2 litres of water a day will improve your health, help with weight management, and is great for your skin , hair and eyes.

Weekly face masks – Buy a mask that suits your skin type and consistently use it every week and you will see a difference. I use GlamGlow masks as they pull all oils out of my very oily skin!!

Plenty of sleep! – seems obvious but people don’t realise the value of a good sleep! , not only will it improve your health but it will prevent dark circles appearing under the  eye and stop skin from turning greyish in colour!

Buy a foundation suitable for your skin type – a lot of people will buy the latest foundation because its what everyone else uses ,but what they don’t realise is if its not suitable for your skin type (dry, oily, combination, normal) then its going to be no good at all! Foundation not suited to you won’t sit right on the skin therefore leaving the odd problem and not leaving it glowing!!

Get outside – Vitamin D has been proven to boost radiance in skin, we get our vitamin D from the Sun!
